Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a type of imaging that uses high frequency sound waves, more commonly known as ultrasound, to produce images of the body.
Sonographers are an integral part of the interdisciplinary health care team and are in high demand across the country and internationally. Sonographic images are used by physicians to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions.
The 24-month full time program will prepare students to become competent in producing quality images which include the heart, abdomen, pelvis, blood vessels and obstetrical ultrasounds.
Training is a combination of classes at the College of New Caledonia’s Prince George campus as well as hands on learning in a variety of hospitals and clinics.
Upon graduating from CNC’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program, students will be able to write the Sonography Canada credentialing examinations for Generalist and Cardiac Sonography streams. Once accredited, students will be able to work in a variety of health care settings.
